Back up IMAP email attachments to Dropbox

If you need a way to safely archive your email attachments outside of your mailbox, this Zap may be right for you. Once you set it up to watch your IMAP email service, any attachments on new emails will be automatically copied into your Dropbox where they will be safely stored until you need to access them.

Note: in the absence of an attachment, this Zap can also store text from the email or anywhere else in a text file.

How It Works

  1. A new email is received
  2. Zapier automatically copies a file to Dropbox
